19-year old boy caught red-handed while trying to smash ATM & steal cash

Nagpur: A 19-year old boy was caught red-handed when he was attempting to break open an ATM and steal the cash. Now, the accused is cooling his heels in police custody.

The accused Sunil Ramgopal Kashyap (19), seems to be from a well-to-do family as he resides in WCL Colony, Saoner, District Nagpur. With nefarious design in his mind, Sunil reached the ATM of Syndicate Bank at Plot No. 170, Vidya Nagar, Koradi area, in the dead of Sunday night (1.30 am).

However, the accused was caught in the act by alert guard of the ATM.
